Yesterday we went for a hike up Grandeur Peak (8,294 ft with 2,829 ft of elevation gain in 5.82 miles and 3:43 hours). The trailhead is located very close to the city, in Millcreek Canyon and on the way up mostly offers views to the south, especially of Gobler's Knob.

We had wanted a hike with some snow, which we got near the top.

The view at the top was wonderful - I love the way the city goes right up to the mountain.

You can see some rain over the Great Salt Lake, downtown, and even our neighborhood.

We had the peak to ourselves so we relied on the timer to take a photo :)

Afterwards we went to the home opener of the Salt Lake City Lions (SLC's brand new Ultimate team). Of note, those were the mountains we were in as our game's backdrop.
